It started off simply enough. OnMilwaukee.com received an innocuous email from Montaous Walton, asking us to do a feature on his feel-good story about making it out of Milwaukee and signing with the Toronto Blue Jays organization.
A perfunctory Google search revealed a real buzz about the 23-year-old undrafted free agent, a second base prospect who reportedly posted a world class 6.3-second, 60-yard dash.
An OnMilwaukee.com investigation has revealed that someone named Montaous Walton does, indeed, exist. But that person has proven to be nothing more a name on a phone record, a voice on the other end of the line.
Montaous Walton, the baseball player, is fictional.
That won’t stop the Royals from signing him.
